AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY FOR EVERYONE

 

Fotokite is a unique solution for versatile aerial photography.

We are building a safe, intelligent flying camera that anyone can deploy in under a minute.

   Intuitive Control

 

Fotokite's tether provides a safe, direct way to fly. The visible, load-bearing physical link allows clear visual accountability for bystanders and property owners.

   Portable

 

Delivered in a  compact, carry-on case, the Fotokite is built for speed, launched and operational in seconds.

   Regulation

 

The Fotokite shares fundamental attributes with conventional kites and is  thus welcomed by safety experts as a safe, more reliable way to access aerial perspectives, especially near crowds.

   Unlimited Flight

 

The tether is used to supply power from the ground, allowing the Fotokite to fly for hours.

How do I get one?

 

We are working hard to deliver a quality product.

Not because the drone has a camera, but because I don’t always know who is behind that camera. If the drone operator were immediately identifiable, however, I would have no problem. That is exactly the issue Fotokite tries to solve.
